Dear Biomch-L readers,

The following item was contained in yesterday's issue of the Numerical Analy-
sis Digest (Vol. 90, nr. 41). [If you're interested in this list, just send a
note to ]. The meetings might be of interest for
those of us involved with motor control modelling, in view of the intimate
relation between input and output models of the human control system.

Regards -- Herman J. Woltring.
